¡Feliz Friday! I don’t think I’ve ever been more ready to get my weekend on! This salsa is a simple way to spice up your summer spread. I love that it starts off cool and refreshing and dances off the tongue with a kick, depending on the spiciness of the shishitos. Shishito peppers are a mysterious breed as you never know which one will pack in a spicy punch. Personally, I kind of love the mystery behind the “shishito roulette.” So daring, I know! I made this for shrimp tacos and added a drizzle of crema for a cool, creamy balance. Pile it on your grilled meat, salad or eat as is with chips.
